Comparison of the Heating/Cooling Energy Demand and Cost according to the Unit Position in a Passive House Apartment
Lee, Myoung-Ju; Lim, In-Hyok; Hur, Da-Woon;
We analyzed and compared the cooling/heating energy demand and cost of nine households of different positions in a passive house Apartment. To do this, the Passive House Planning Package(PHPP) was used on Building 102 of the Net Zero Energy Housing Complex located in Hagye-dong, Nowon-gu, Seoul, Korea. For the heating energy demand, it was analyzed that the middle floor and the first floor have the lowest and highest demands, respectively, and the highest demand was about twice as the lowest. On the same floor, the units in the middle had the lowest demand, while the units on the right and left of the building had little difference. For the cooling energy demand, the higher floors had higher demand, and the highest cooling energy demand was about 40% higher than the lowest. There was not much difference between the units on the same floor when it comes to cooling energy. By analyzing the cooling and heating costs of each household, we concluded that the household with the highest electricity bills payed about 50% higher cost than the one with the lowest bills.
